We're Pregnant!


(A picture of me 16 weeks pregnant.)
As most of you probably already know, we are pregnant with BABY #2! After many months of trying and praying we are so SO excited to be adding another member to our family. Baby #2 is due November 14th (so "baby" and Grace will be almost exactly 2 1/2 years apart when "baby" is born).
Grace already understands (at least somewhat) that a new family member is coming along, as, since we told her we were pregnant, she has started being extra sweet to babies she sees and giving kisses to the baby (via mommy's tummy). She's such a sweet, thoughtful girl that we know she'll make a great big sister.
As for "Mommy," I've definitely experienced some nausea (& fatigue, bloating, restless nights...) this pregnancy (particularly the first trimester), but my nausea has been MUCH better this time around than in my pregnancy with Grace, and now that I'm in the 2nd trimester, I'm feeling much less nauseus and have more energy and drive.
It's weird to be on pregnancy #2 and feel that we're both prepared for this baby and not prepared at all, so it's good to know we have a few months left to for sure get everything ready for our next little one. For example, we haven't even thought about names (we wanted to wait until we found out the gender), but since we have our next ultrasound in 1 1/2 weeks, things will get rolling in that department very soon. We'll really be ok no matter the sex, but I'm dying to find out which one it is! And on that note, I'll sign off on pregnancy news for now and check back in with the gender and a new pregnancy pic in a couple weeks!
